Papal condolences for Ugandan bomb victims

July 15, 2010

Pope Benedict has expressed his condolences following two bomb explosions in Kampala that left 74 dead. Somali terrorists linked to Al-Qaeda have claimed responsibility.

“We are all deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence and we strongly condemn the act that indiscriminately killed and injured innocent people,” added Archbishop Cyprian Lwanga of Kampala. “This barbaric act reveals the evil and ugly nature of the perpetrators who do not value the sanctity of human life.”
